Cassper Nyovest has a bigger plan in mind whenever he makes money moves and he's urging his fans to look beyond the glitz and see what his moves are doing for the culture.

Just as AKA said his vodka move was a trendsetter for hip-hop artists, Cassper believes his mobile phone deal is trend-setting as well.

The rapper recently joined the likes of Maps Maponyane as the newest South African ambassador for Samsung Mobile. The way he sees it, he's opening doors for fellow SA rappers to bag similar gigs.

"This Samsung partnership has already done amazing things. My prediction says all the competitors are going to buy into other hip-hop brands, which is dope for hip-hop as we have become the most lucrative genre in the country. How dope is that? What a time to be alive."

Cassper felt that he's been on a roll with his predictions and that has translated into his music. 

Cassper also took time to set one "pretence fan" in place after the guy asked when Cassper planned on dropping an album with "real" rap.
